Downs edwards and patau screening tests
Hi everyone. Obviously I'm not a mom but my partner is just over 12 weeks pregnant and we had the screening tests done on Tuesday. Just wondering if there is a high risk of having any of these then how do they in form you? Is it a letter saying stating the chance of having one of these problems or do they make you go in to see them face to face. Reason I ask is because my partner has received a letter today with a consultant appointment in about 6 weeks time. Although there is no mention of these tests on this letter. I am wondering if this appointment is because something is wrong with the tests we had or if it's nothing to do with that and just a routine appointment as her last pregnancy had a few complications (high BP and pre eclampsia)
That letter will be the next midwife appointment 16weeks is when you usually see the midwife again.
If there is anything wrong your partner will get a phone call in around 10 days from the bloods been taken if the results are low risk you receive a letter in the post in around 2-3 weeks
